16.12.10 - Frozen Steps
Snow returned briefly to Lincoln, and more is forecast for the next few days. But I've been struggling to keep on top of things today and haven't had chance to take any new pics, so this is a re-working of a shot from a couple of weeks ago.
Greestone Stairs have been a route up into the Cathedral precinct since at least the 12th century, and are one of my chosen ways into town when I want to avoid crowds and traffic. They are of course said to be haunted, talk of severed heads and strange apparitions are common place, but then alcohol has that effect on impressionable minds :)
I've used the same "bleach bypass" processing in Color Efex Pro that I used yesterday, and it is rapidly becoming one of my favourite PP effects. Thanks for all the recent comments, I hope to get back to commenting myself when I can make the world slow down a bit.
There is a very different version of this image here;

I am continuing this Daily Project into a third year as best I can. It is my intention to shoot and post every day when possible, but please forgive me if I have to raid the archives or even miss the odd day here and there. Some days might be just quick snapshots, others may have some pretensions towards art. I intend to try new things, exploring new areas and pushing my photographic comfort zone ever further. Constructive criticism is always welcome of course, and I will try to reciprocate when time allows.
As usual I will enable Google Earth, so that if you click on the "map this" button above the image you can see where the photographs were taken.
